John Dulaney gave a great talk a few weeks ago on the Chromebook. Who
would like to do the next in our series of Friday "Tech Talks"? Perhaps
a little too late for today, but plenty of time for next week!
If you're interested, reply to this mail, and add here:
Hello ARM people,
Once again, one of my packages is failing to build on the upcoming
Fedora ARM release. This time it is the m4rie package. It builds and
passes all of its tests on F-18, but 3 of the tests segfault on F-19.
I can't tell from the koji build report what has gone wrong, other
than observing that segfaults happened. I need to run those tests in
a debugger to figure out what is going on. Is there such a thing as
an F-19 ARM system image I can run under QEMU? I haven't yet found
one by poking around. If one is not available yet, do you have any
estimates for when one might be available?
I am looking to buy some ARM hardware for Fedora, and really like the
ODROID-U2. I know it is not supported yet by Fedora. Does anyone have
an idea if the support is close? I am not seeing too much in the way
of active kernel upstreaming, but I could be wrong.
Also, it seems to require a some Samsung-provided binary blobs for
booting, as well as a signed bootloader.
Are these blobs compatible with the Fedora firmware guidelines, or
would this board be forever doomed to live as a remix?
